On Thursday, Feb. 16, following a lengthy public hearing regarding an application for a liquor license for the Cedaredge Lodge and discussion of an alternate point of diversion for the Butte and Fogg Ditch companies, the Cedaredge trustees also decided to begin collecting sales tax on golf cart rentals.
The action followed an executive session with the town's attorney, Steve Harper, for the purpose of receiving legal advice on specific legal questions.
Following the closed meeting, the regular meeting was reconvened and the trustees returned to approve a motion authorizing the town to charge a sales tax on all golf cart short-term rentals, in lieu of paying the sales tax upon the purchase of the golf carts.
They also approved a motion to pay the Colorado Department of Revenue $3,097 for prior year's golf cart sales tax leases owed the state by the town, for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Earlier in the meeting the trustees approved a request from LaDonna Gunn, from the Delta County Library District, to reestablish the Historic Preservation and Advisory Board and the town's Registry of Historic Sites and Structures (originally established by resolution in 1996).
The trustees also approved $31,000 of Main Street Improvement Project monies to fix the drainage problems and replace the asphalt on a section of NW Cedar Avenue at the intersection with NW 9th Street; selected JVA Consulting, Inc. to create planning documents related to the wastewater treatment facility; and approved the appointment of Steve Grewe to the tree board.blog comments powered by Disqus
